  5. Thanks all for the support. I was surprised when I found the cigarettes in the glove box as I did not smoke in my vehicle. Just occurred to me that another time wasting activity is gone. Pulling over to smoke. At any rate, looking forward to getting another day under my belt. The most important thing for me is always remember I cannot have just one, it don’t work that way for me. Most likely don’t work that way for most people I guess. Raining here, and that’s a good thing, we need it. So today, football and a few beers and hang out. Cheers

  6. I have spent this weekend going through boxes of paperwork going back to 2005! Since it is 32 degrees here now , instead of shredding it, going to throw it all into my outdoor firepit later today and watch it burn....while having a glass of pinot noir and maybe toast some marshmallows, too!

  9. Thinking about it is my deal too.....although it passes. Some days are worse than others. For me, Once I get past the morning, I will be good. I smoked way more in the morning than the rest of the day. I guess it’s not surprising that the further I get into the day, the less I think about smoking now. I just tell myself, fine I can think about it, just not going to do it!

  15. The problem with quitting is that its a passive process. The only thing we do, is, refrain. Its not an activity so much as a decision. When we first start this journey of abstinence, our brain and body ask us to smoke, to receive, the nicotine we've come to expect. So the decision not to smoke has to be made again and again. Maybe a hundred or more times a day during the first weeks. That's why it so important to stay engaged in activities, preferably social activities with non-smokers. If your doing something that occupies your attention, t

  16. Linda, I am just shy of two weeks, so I like you are a rookie at this. With everything in pretty much lockdown don’t help. Not smoking and stuck at home can make one feel like you are in jail or something. I really don’t have cravings, I just think about it. If I have to, I will find something to do to occupy my mind. Or come on here....anything. Now I am to the point I would be really pissed at myself if I cave. I just don’t give myself any opportunity to smoke.....I guess I just wanted to say I am right there with ya...it ain’t easy....

  18. We were on autopilot when we smoked. Combine physical addiction, mental conditioning, and a series of rituals that we set up around getting our fix and you've got yourself something that really consumes your life. We were on autopilot when we smoked. Didn't really think about, we just smoked because that's what smokers do. Quitting smoking temporarily yanked us right out of our comfort zone. The thing about comfort zones is, they can turn into ruts.

  19. That's addiction @Linda and it happens to all of us. I literally thought about cigarettes 24/7 for easily the first month or two. I can still remember the first day I woke up and smoking wasn't on my mind, I even sang in the shower lol. So just trust us when we say its going to get better because its going to get so much better

  25. @Linda, I had a really hard first year but now in hindsight it was by my own doing. You have to remember you're not giving anything up, you are taking your life back! You can do it, you will do it and we'll be here talking you through the rough parts and celebrating your victories Have you tried the tricks and clues we've given you? If one clue doesn't work try another, anything to keep that awesome quit you have.

  29. Wow! You can't know -- well, unless you've been at 11 months yourself-- how exciting this is! Eleven months! I can't believe i!. I still have the occasional dream where I'm smoking and realize it's just a dream. I still notice smoking in movies and remember how I felt in stressed circumstances how it felt a relief to smoke. Being a nonsmoker is the best. I'm 70 years old. It's not smart to trash your body at my age, at any age. I'm so excited for the lido deck!

  33. I was going to make a joke about the Moe Howard cut versus the Pete Rose cut. Then I went to Google images and found this... Why does this picture exist? Why was it ever taken in the first place? What the hell was Charlie Hustle thinking? I'm willing to look past the gambling allegations, but I don't know if Pete can ever be forgiven for this photograph.
